Dear Administrators, Faculty and Staff,
The board of New Hampshire Writers’ Project (NHWP) invites you to join us at Southern New Hampshire University on April 1, 2017 for our new Teacher Track, one of many initiatives we plan to introduce this year in an effort to serve you, your students and all emerging young writers across our state.
We have designed two sessions with teachers in mind; professional development certificates will be available upon request.
A workshop called Literature Out Loud where spoken word poets, comedians, and professional actors will perform excerpts from works submitted by your students.
· A Teacher Training Session with with NPR’s own Bill Littlefield, host of “Only a Game” and education activist with 39 years of classroom experience. Bill will reveal the tools that have enabled him to get students writing from the heart, including writing prompts and other inspirational techniques.
The sessions will run from 2:00pm to 4:15pm, after which we invite you to join us for an end of day celebration—Bottom of the Ninth— where Bill Littlefield and Glenn Stout (author and editor of Best American Sports Writing) will read some baseball related selections. A number of prizes will also be raffled off, including and Red Sox tickets; must be present to win.
There is no charge for the Teacher Track but space is limited, so please reserve yours today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
For a more complete description of these sessions, and everything else on offer at Writers’ Day, go to http://www.nhwritersproject.org/content/writers-day-2016
(It will take you to the 2017 Writers’ Day page.) Of course, if you’d like to join us for the whole day, you may register there as well. Fees from Writers’ Day allow us to provide programming throughout the year, including a college essay workshop we hope to pilot in the fall. If you are unable to attend Writers’ Day this year, but would like to find out more about programs that might interest your students, such as the statewide Flash Fiction Slam, check out http://www.nhwritersproject.org/
